OCLC Files Suit Against Clarivate for Using Its WorldCat Cataloging for a New Service

OCLC issued the following statement to the press on June 15:

On June 13, 2022, OCLC filed suit against Clarivate PLC and its subsidiaries, Clarivate Analytics (US) LLP, Ex Libris, and ProQuest in the United States District Court, Southern District of Ohio. Claims in the suit include tortious interference with contracts and prospective business relationships and conspiracy to interfere with contracts and business relationships. We are seeking both temporary and permanent injunctions to stop Clarivate and its subsidiaries from wrongfully encouraging libraries to violate their agreements with OCLC by contributing collaboratively created records from WorldCat® to Clarivate’s MetaDoor service. We are also asking the court to stop Clarivate and its subsidiaries from misappropriating records from WorldCat® to develop its MetaDoor service. 

INFOdocket reported on the suit and provided the following: “The complaint (32 pages; PDF) is available here. The complete court docket with additional items is also available and is updated as new documents become available.”
